In accordance with diocesan directives, there is a six-month waiting period for all wedding ceremonies. No wedding can be scheduled in the Parish Calendar without first having met in person with Deacon Tom to ensure that marriage within the Church can indeed take place in the time period desired. It is always wise, therefore, to ensure your date in the Parish Calendar prior to confirming a date with your social hall or caterer. After your meeting with Deacon Tom and your selection of a wedding date, you will receive a marriage packet in the mail from SS. John & Paul. It will contain a letter of congratulations, a Wedding Guide, an informational booklet on Cohabitation, a list of upcoming pre-marriage classes, and directions to SS John & Paul.
